San Diego's The Lost Abbey To Open New Tasting Room The Sanctuary This Week In San Marcos

October 29, 2019

Popular San Diego craft brewery, The Lost Abbey, is expanding its presence in its home neighborhood of San Marcos with the opening of The Sanctuary, a 2,200 square-foot tasting room debuting this week in North County's San Elijo community.

Founded in 2006 by Pizza Port's Director of Brewery Operations Tomme Arthur, The Lost Abbey produces an extensive line-up of Belgian-inspired beers, barrel-aged beers, and sours that has resulted in the brewery garnering dozens of awards in its 13 year history. The San Marcos-based brewery already has a satellite tasting room in Cardiff by the Sea dubbed The Confessional and will open The Sanctuary in San Elijo on November 1, the first day of San Diego Beer Week 2019. The company is also working on securing a location to launch a tasting room in San Diego's East Village.

The Lost Abbey's new tasting room will be located at 1215 San Elijo Drive in the space that last housed a wine restaurant called Café Stoked. The company will offer Lost Abbey Beers on tap, as well as by bottle, as well as offerings from sister concepts Port Brewing and The Hop Concept. There will also be an onsite kitchen that they aim to rent out to area chefs and mobile concepts for rotating pop ups.

The new Lost Abbey tasting room will open on Friday, November 1, at 11am at 1215 San Elijo Road in San Marcos. For more information, visit
